David Praises the Lord

Then, in front of everyone, David sang praises to the Lord: I praise you forever, Lord! You are the God our ancestor Jacob worshiped. Your power is great, and your glory is seen everywhere in heaven and on earth. You are king of the entire world, and you rule with strength and power. You make people rich and powerful and famous. We thank you, our God, and praise you. But why should we be happy that we have given you these gifts? They belong to you, and we have only given back what is already yours. We are only foreigners living here on earth for a while, just as our ancestors were. And we will soon be gone, like a shadow that suddenly disappears.”
1 Chronicles 29:10‭-‬15 CEV

Kind David, time was up! He was ready to transfer his kingdom to his son, but right before that, he prayed for His Son, and he blessed him with his prayer. He reminded God was faithful till now, and He will be on his son reign, Solomon. He acknowledged that God is the King of the entire world.

He had started with a praise song, not demanding, not complaining, nothing else except exalting God. Read the above verse a second time, this time slowly and put yourself in the prayer. Can you thank God for all His faithfulness in your life? Can you transfer this blessing to your heirs? As Kind David said, ” we have only given back what already His”, Let us Give all of our praise and worship to the King of Kings. Let us praise Him as David did.
